About Me

CURRENT MISSION

So see everyone and everything.

ABOUT ME

I'm shy at first, but it doesn't take much to get me hyped up. I've got a crazy streak, but I'm pretty level headed too. Just show me that you are passionate about something and we'll click.

PHILOSOPHY

I tend to just go with the flow most times.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have surfed and hosted. It has changed my life in a lot of ways.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started CSing with a trip through mainly Germany, but also Vienna and Amsterdam. I stayed with 4 CS'ers and met up with another 3 while on our trip. I've had three surfers in the last year. I'm hoping I'll be doing more surfing in the future...it's been a while.

Interests

Travel, Learning Languages, Drawing, Painting, Gaming, Music, Reading, and Eating.

Music, Movies & Books

Amelie, La Femme Nikita, Volver, Sin City, Death Proof, God Bless America, Goodbye Lenin, Trainspotting, Burn After Reading, Fight Club, Forrest Gump, A Clockwork Orange, Adaptation, Across the Universe, Requiem for a Dream, Pi, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've flown (as in the act of being in the cockpit) an airplane before. I've also completely dismantled my life and begun putting it back together. I learned that life goes on and it's great to have proof of that.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn new things and pick up knowledge relatively fast. I'm not sure how useful that is to everyone else, but maybe I give you a fun fact. I could teach you how to draw, but you have try even if you think you're bad. I would love to share with other my love of humanity, travel, and of course food & drink. We love to cook and chat. I think I live for that.
